Pasco Ready Sites Program
One of the fastest growing trends in the site location business is the demand for project-ready industrial properties. The reason is simple: companies need ready access to buildable sites in order to make a location decision and the ability to efficiently begin construction and complete a project. As such, the location decision process demands available properties and those properties need to be ready for development. Companies looking to build new facilities want properties that are ready to go and relatively "risk free."
As a result, communities seeking to recruit projects need to be prepared to market their properties with a wealth of information and data on both their properties and community, so companies are not waiting for a community to find an appropriate property and determine its suitability for development.
Recognizing this trend, the Pasco Economic Development Council, in partnership with Pasco County, has implemented the Pasco Ready Sites Program.
McCallum Sweeney Consulting (MSC), a site selection consulting firm based in Greenville, South Carolina, has been retained to conduct the MSC Evaluation and Certification Program on four to six Pasco County, Florida sites over a three-year period that meet the minimum criteria for the program. MSC executes a number of similar programs around the country and is designed to closely parallel MSC’s site selection projects, with the questionnaires and required support documentation similar to that which is required on siting projects.
Pasco EDC will submit sites to MSC that meet minimum criteria guidelines to enter into the Evaluation Phase and eventually be invited into the Certification Phase by the consultant.
The Pasco Ready Site Program is designed to evaluate multiple sites and create a checklist of items and costs that need to be addressed for further certification; both industrial sites and multi-use business parks.
Contact Tom Ryan at the Pasco Economic Development Council if you have questions or would like additional information about the Pasco Ready Sites Program.
